Gosh where do I start??
It was going oh so well too! Around 11 am is when I guess it all started... I got out of bed, ha ha don't do that often! Only to use the marvellous commode at the end of my bed. Let me tell you it's worth it's weight in gold since my knee has been playing up. So anyway... I went to stand up, my body was forward but apparently my leg was facing left.... As I stood up I pulled the ligaments in my knee!(I know this now as its what the hospital say!) I tell you what else can go wrong!! I managed to make it, just to the commode and back to bed. But laying in bed my pain went through the roof, I was very uncomfortable and nearly screaming with pain. My husband, yes the lovely jon... He phoned the paramedics and they sent an ambulance out. They assessed me as agreed to take me to hospital to get the pain under comtrol.
In accident and emergency they made me comfortable, gave me a morphine slow release injection .... This is great and I am going to ask my own doctor for it! And they put a cannula in to take blood and administer things...
Ha ha and they actually gave me a cup of tea!! I had to take a photo of the wonderful cup and saucer.... Hmmmmm
If your not familiar, NHS stands for National Health Service, I think the logo is on the cups and saucers to stop people taking/borrowing them to take home?!!! Oh but isn't it just lovely??!! Ha ha ha
So uh huh.... Was in accident and emergency, they say they want to keep me in over night to make sure they control my pain. Hmmm thank goodness I could not of coped with being admitted again. So got wheeled around to the CDU, Clinical Decision Unit... And spent the night there. I kind of cat napped through out the night. I think it's all the strange noises? Then thank goodness the hospital organized transport home for me... I went home in an ambulance! So yes I am now back home... Ha ha in my bed!!!
I do have one more medication now to take on top of the ones I already take.... I am fine, dosed up and relaxed. So yes a pulled ligament on top of my severe osteoarthritis!! What ever next??? Nothing I hope!!!
As you can imagine I have not done that much stitching... Oh but managed some... So I would like to share it with you all now.
Remember is the wonderful Blue Ribbon Design called "Five Houses Of Hope" stitched on 18 count home dyed fabric using DMC threads....
I am still working on it...in between sleeping! When I came home I fell asleep for about 4-5 hours... I obviously needed the sleep!
So now home again... It's back to stitching!
Hope your all well and happy... Oh I am happy, happy to be home!!
Smiles to you all, until tomorrow.... Xxx
